Conference and Accommodation at Army Foundation

  • Created: May 04, 2015

Summary

Conference And Accommodation At Army Foundation – the latest, greatest undertaking by the South African Army Foundation was launched at a high end event on the 4th May 2015.

This project – which has taken over a year to plan and complete, is one of great significance not only for the organization, but for the members of the Army Foundation. The conference and accommodation facilities offer members a state of the art, futuristic space in which to host work-sessions, conferences, meetings and other events, in a tranquil setting only a stones’ throw away from the Army’s Thaba Tshwane units.

The accommodation facility, equipped with world class finishes and housing 20 rooms for a “home away from home” experience, offers the traveling member a comfortable and affordable rest during training courses in and around the Pretoria region.

The launch was well attended by esteemed guests from the DOD, the SA Army Foundation Board of Control as well as some members of the Army Council. Our business partners from the likes of Liberty, Avbob and MHS Holdings also joined in on the celebrations.

Hosted by the Chairman of the BOC, Maj Gen LC Nobanda shared with guests the history of the project and encouraged all to make use of the facilities and spread the word.

Following the formalities of speeches from both the Maj Gen LC Nobanda and the General Manager of the Army Foundation Mr AE Ramphele, guests gathered to witness as Maj Gen LC Nobanda cut the ribbon to officially open the accommodation facility. Guests were invited to take a tour of the rooms and judging from positive remarks the guests were impressed and awestruck by the standard of what they saw.

Maj Gen LC Nobanda then unveiled the plaque mounted on the outer wall of the conference centre and with a final snip of a second ribbon, guests made their way into the dining area of the venue where they were further mesmerized by the setting and beautiful décor. The event culminated in the welcoming of new Board members to the SA Army Foundation BOC, and the thanking of past board members with the exclusive Army Foundation Blazers handed over as a token of appreciation.

Guests wined and dined and enjoyed the calm beauty and cutting edge architecture that is the new Conference and Accommodation at Army Foundation.
